Delta Dental Community Care Foundation Awards Nearly $950,000 in Grants to Pennsylvania Nonprofits

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Delta Dental Community Care Foundation has given grants to 31 organizations, totaling nearly $950,000, in Pennsylvania to provide relief amid the COVID-19 pandemic. These unrestricted grants were intended to help the Foundation’s nonprofit partners continue to provide vital services to the most vulnerable members of their communities.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has been a one-two punch for many of our Pennsylvania-based nonprofit partners by increasing the needs for their services while reducing their fundraising capability and ability to rely on volunteers,” said Kenzie Ferguson, vice president of Foundation and corporate social responsibility for Delta Dental of California. “We made the decision to allocate nearly all of our 2020 funding to support those fighting on the front lines of COVID-19 and will continue to be a resource to our communities as this pandemic continues.”

Dentists are back in Pennsylvania (with a big condition, and some big limits)

Dentistry is back. Kind of.

Pennsylvania Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine said during her daily COVID-19 news briefing Friday that she is releasing guidance that would permit some non-emergency dental practice to resume statewide – with one big caveat:

Levine said the new orders state that dentists must provide personal protective equipment to all participating staff in accordance with the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration and Centers for Disease Control infection prevention guidelines, and the emphasis is to be on procedures that don’t produce heavy spray from a patient’s mouth.

Most dentists in the state have been providing care for dental emergencies only since mid-March, as Gov. Tom Wolf started ordering business closures to try to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Under the new guidance, a Health Department spokesman said Friday afternoon, practices could be expanded to cover things like orthodontic work or root canals, but not routine cleanings.
